Iguaçu Falls, 2003
Paula and I visited Iguaçu Falls (spelt Iguazu in Argentina,
and sometimes Iguassu in the US or UK), on the
Brazil-Argentina border. I have visited both Niagara and
Victoria Falls, but thought that Iguaçu was even more
impressive than either of those. More coming soon.
Safari in Botswana, 2002
I went on a safari to Botswana in September 2002 with Wilderness
Safaris, which I would definitely rate as the best trip I
have ever been on. More coming soon.
World Cup Final, Tokyo, 2002

(that's soccer, for any uninitiated Americans reading!), in
exchange for bidding lots of frequent flyer miles in a United
Airlines auction. My friend Mike Mitchell came with me,and we
got to see the semi-final in which Brazil beat
Turkey 1-0, and the final in which Brazil beat Germany 2-0.
And we got to spend a week in Tokyo - the whole trip was a
great experience. Read
I visited Bangkok to speak at the Geo Asia Pacific
conference, and also fitted in a few days of vacation. I
